Net Huts, Hastings Old Town
Net Huts, Hastings Old Town
Fishing Net Huts
The huts were used to store fishing nets and equipment. The weatherboarded structures were around 25 feet high and 8 feet square. Due to the lack of space the huts were restricted to 8 square feet at the base, so they were built tall.

There are around 43 remaining in Hastings, which were Grade II listed in the 1970s. Most are found to the Fishermans Stade along Rock-A-Nore Road There were once many more which were destroyed by storms or demolished in the 1950s for redevelopment.
Rock-a-Nore Road
A short dead end road at the Eastern side of the Old Town, Rock-a-Nore Road sits at the base of East Hill.

To the North side of the road are fish and chips shops, cafés and restaurants. Mid way along is the entrance to the East Hill Lift, Funicular Railway. A new hotel is also under construction.

To the South side is the Jerwood Gallery, fishing net huts, fish mongers, a museum in an old chapel, and at the end of the road is an aquarium.

Leading off the end of the road is a large car park.
